Become the more confident version of you


The placement scheme started in 2003, when we were approached by a student studying Computer Science at Aston University who needed a year in industry in order to complete his degree. Since then, the scheme has progressed significantly, and we’re really proud of it. The scheme is an integral part of ProspectSoft's philosophy and recruitment drive, where placements have a noticeable impact on the company. Placements are given high levels of responsibility, and the chance to have a real influence in their roles, through having the opportunity to lead projects independently from start to finish.

Right from the beginning, our senior staff have put a huge amount of effort into the scheme, from designing interviews and assessment days, to mentoring and training throughout the year.

A Unique Placement

The ProspectSoft placement experience is like no other. You'll be working for the Prospect CRM product (a team of around 50 people) within a much bigger software company – The Access Group (thousands of employees). It really is the best of both worlds! From branded clothing, to instant discounts on your favourite restaurants, shops and activities – there are plenty of Access extras to take advantage of as a placement!

Personal Development

Your line manager and the team at Access want you to get the most out of your placement. Throughout the year, you’ll be working alongside industry experts who’ll guide and support you along your placement journey. Plus, you'll be encouraged to complete additional training and development to boost your CV, like achieving online certifications.

Real Responsibility

Right from the get-go, you’re given real responsibility, being treated and respected just like your full-time peers. Tasks and projects will influence the business’ reputation, success, and growth, so your skills are hugely valued and appreciated.

Dynamic Team

The friendly, young, and energetic atmosphere at ProspectSoft is something we pride ourselves on! We’re a supportive company that treasures every single employee.

Product Training & Pizza

Who doesn’t love Pizza? The last Friday of every month combines food and learning! Bringing the ProspectSoft team together, we learn about exciting features that have just been released in the software, whilst simultaneously indulging in endless amounts of Dominos pizza!

Team-building Fridays
